Inscription.  In April 1909, the newly incorporated City of Roseville leased the upper level of the historic two story J.D. Pratt, later William Sawtell, store building at the corner of Pacific and Lincoln Streets for use as the town’s first City Hall.

Rent was set at $12.00 per month including janitorial services.

City fathers met here until 1911 when they moved to new quarters on Vernon Street.
